Kitchener Public Library says it will be closing its main downtown branch on 85 Queen Street North for about two months as it enters the final stages of a large-scale renovation project.

The branch will close temporarily starting on or around March 23. 

Dale Dyce, the library's communications coordinator, says during the two month period, library patrons can go to a temporary location at King Street and Breithaupt Street.

"We've leased some space at 607 King Street West and we'll have some core services like popular collections, popular books and DVDs," said Dyce. "So people can have some area in the downtown area to use the library if our branches are further away than what works for them."  

The temporary location will be open during regular library hours, including Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
